If you are an educator, I salute you! Since I can't give you all a shiny red apple, I wanted to offer up a few resources for you in this post.
If you're in need of classroom materials that work in the real world, please visit Cottonwood Press - their site has a wealth of resources to make your job a little easier!
For how-to activities, ideas, and inspiration, check out Creativity Portal.
Looking for fresh new ways to inspire young writers? Visit Hank Kellner's blog, English Education, for a look at his evocative, intriguing photos. This blog helps educators use photographs to inspire their students to write poetry, fiction, and essays.
If you have a resource or link to share, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll post it here!
What Inspires You?
